How many hotels are there in Florence? Hundreds, at least - and some of them are pretty dire. So when you find an exceptionally good one, you go back (and you recommend it to your friends). We've stayed at Il Guelfo Bianco three times and will stay there again; and the friends we've sent there have all fallen in love with this superb little hotel.
The location is ideal, a couple of hundred metres from the Duomo (which is visible from several of the rooms) and Florence's wonderful markets. The rooms are great, with comfortable beds, good furnishings - even the olive oil soap is terrific! - the architecture is charming and quirky; the staff are friendly, helpful and genuinely caring (for our last visit a few weeks ago, Antonella put us in the room we'd stayed in on our first visit four years ago); and Il Des o, the tiny bistrot next door, does brilliant meals.
Il Guelfo Bianco is a gem.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's housed in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad.
